In  ‘Doggerel’, which takes its name from a middle english term used to describe comic, badly written verse,  the conditions in Europe during the first half of the twentieth century, as seen through Oskar’s eyes are linked with the current situation in the early twenty-first century. This being one of contested migration and border enforcement both personal and political. Oskar stands by his own grave, composing irregular rhyming verse and playing his drum, as the edit cuts between images of a Miniature Europe and the conflicts that borders create. Rhythmically paralleling the nationalist tragedies of the past with those of today.
